    Hi there. Just purchased my first a3 a couple of days ago and it failed the m.o.t on a knackered cat. Has any one replaced one and know of the cheapest place to get one?
    Oh yeah....... I have a A3 1.8t Quattro

    Many thanks

    They are a ******* to remove and replace, think you can pick them up for around £150 though. Check ebay

    May be a good opportunity to go for a high flow sport cat and map, in total would probably be cheaper than a new OME one.

    Found gsf car parts has a r103 approved one for £140. Will go for that as they are £120 cheaper than jayjar and euros.

    A good sports cat is usually near as good as a decat but without the hassle of swapping them over for mot's and have diff number of cells depending on your requirements.
